Will the left, in its multiple components, have one or only one candidate in the next presidential election in four years? Praised at each election by voters on the left of the political spectrum, this wish has often remained pious during the last presidential elections. But the new boss of EELV, Marine Tondeliersaid he was in favor of it in an interview with Sunday newspaper.
“We will have a single candidate from the left and environmentalists in 2027”, she says before continuing: “We propose that a cooperative of goodwill be set up in the coming weeks which would play the role of campaign committee for 2027”, evoking “the broadest possible framework, which ***ociates, on an equal basis with political parties, ***ociations, unions, citizen collectives, artists…”
Marine Tondelier pleads for a “candidate capable of bringing together”
The former municipal councilor of Hénin-Beaumont advocates that this “cooperative” offers “a method” for the appointment of this candidate. But “it is clear that the primaries with militant applause, in recent years, have not brought happiness to those who have recourse to them, whatever their political camp”, she points out.
“If the debate over the next four years boils down to Mélenchon, stop or, then it will be a failure”, further argues the environmentalist leader, considering that the nominated candidate will have to present “capacities to federate, to appease, to dialogue”. “To get out of the virile competitions of the past, it might be time to trust a woman,” she adds. It remains to be seen whether its partners within Nupesor outside, will agree with his idea.
